Soul Winning Ministry of Amazing Grace Mission
For almost 25 years, Amazing Grace Mission, Inc., has been used of the Lord to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ in the market places of America and beyond. Founded by one man and his wife (Dr. James H. & Florence Gardner) in 1983 the mission has grown by the grace of God from one couple sharing the gospel at local country and state fairs to a mission of more than 150 missionaries laboring on 4 continents, in many countries of the world as well as every state in the United States of America.
Thousands of churches and individuals have assisted in shaping AGM's vision by their generosity. Their gifts have been instrumental in expanding the outreach of market place evangelism around the world. AGM is praying for 1000 missionaries to minister at the thousands of fairs and festivals in America and around the world. The gifts provided by these generous donors have enabled AGM missionaries to stand on the “front lines” of the battle for souls.
Many Christians are asking, “How can I continue to give to world evangelism after I’ve gone to heaven?” This important question has an answer.
AGM has established a “Giving Forever” Ministry that can provide a service to those who want to “leave a legacy that will give forever.” The following services are available for your consideration.
Giving Forever Charitable Estate Planning
AGM provides estate planning to assist clients in providing for their families and reducing income and estate taxes, as well as providing funds for world evangelism.
Giving Forever Charitable Remainder Trusts
Assistance is available in designing and establishing charitable remainder trusts. These trusts assist in current income tax deduction, avoid capital gains taxes, and provide income for life. The AGM’s Giving Forever Ministry is willing to serve as trustee.
Giving Forever Designated Gifts
Gifts of stock, bonds, or real estate can be given to the foundation to sell or disburse and the income be used in AGM’s ministries worldwide.
Giving Forever Advised Funds
The Giving Forever Ministry offers Advised Funds in which the donor makes gifts and receives a current income tax deduction.
Giving Forever Endowment Funds
The Giving Forever Ministry offers a special type of private foundation so donors can receive a current income tax deduction. The principal remains permanently in the Giving Forever Ministry with the interest being disbursed to various AGM ministries. The Gift can be given in honor of a spouse, parent, child or friend.
Giving Forever Gift Annuities
The Giving Forever Ministry provides, in exchange for cash or other assets such as securities, a donor with a guaranteed regular income for life. Married couples often choose to have the income continue for as long as either lives. The donor receives an income tax deduction when the annuity is funded and part of each payment is tax-free.
Giving Forever Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance may provide an affordable method to make a donation. By purchasing or donating a life insurance policy in which the Giving Forever Ministry is made owner or beneficiary, the donor can receive a charitable income tax deduction for the current value of the policy and for future premium payments.
The Giving Forever Ministry also will accept paid-up insurance policies that may no longer be needed for their original purpose. This will allow the donor to receive a charitable income tax deduction that is approximately equal to the cash surrender value of the policy.
Giving Forever Gifts of Kind
The Giving Forever Ministry is prepared to receive gifts such as real estate, or farms and allow the donor to use the property for the remainder of his life. The donor may arrange to retain use of the property for a spouse or loved one as a life tenant after his/her death. An immediate charitable income tax deduction is available based on the value of the property and the age of the tenant.
